The Finger

 Everyone in blogland seems to have gone seriously political or at least serious anyway.
I just can’t get going at all in any shape and form.
Yesterday I watched old dvds as it rained and rained 
And only felt human after buying myself some Arctic Roll which I ate with cold custard from a massive serving spoon.
Today the girls and I went for breakfast at the Horizon cafe on Colwyn Bay Prom where I cut my finger rather badly after the barista dropped a milk jug onto the counter .
I hate fuss, but after I left a trail of blood worse than Tippi Hedren down that attic door so had to accept a botch first aid job from the proprietor with a roll of masking tape.
That’s all that’s happened today

  1. I hope you got a free coffee and cake for your pains! I'm surprised they didn't have a proper first aid kit, with sterile pads and micropore tape. Not impressed that you had to make do with masking tape. I haven't seen Arctic Roll for years. I'm old enough to remember when it first came out. It seemed very exotic! xx

  2. How did your finger end up in the line of fire of the dropped milk jug so as to get cut? The mind boggles.

    1. Boggles? Don’t trouble yourself , a simple accident

    2. The mind boggles is a common, well used English idiom. I still find it difficult to imagine why your finger was cut unless you grasped a piece of the wreckage.

    1. Bloody hell...he dropped the jug which shattered in front of me on the counter, my hand was next to it on the counter.

    2. But how EXACTLY did it happen and why did they not have a first aid kit and why didn't you, eh?... eh?..... and are you really sure you understand what boggles means? What is its origin. eh? eh?

  4. Well, at least this isn't political. I suppose the cafe out to have a first aid kit. I always make a point of slicing the middle finger so I can make a point every time I display it.

  5. Okay, so I shouldn't be laughing, but I can just picture your exasperation in the above responses. Ah, well. The world is precariously uncertain. We've all been locked up for a year or more after 4 years of near-daily outrage. It may take awhile for us to learn how to lighten up again?

    Oh, OUCH! So sorry your finger was in the way of a flying shard of glass. With the cut being right beside the fingernail, it will certainly be bothersome as it heals, too.
    Hope you have comfort food, beverages, and movies at home so you can take good care of you today.

    Hugs!

  8. A nurse without a first aid kit. Ironic.

  9. Looking on the bright side John a splinter of china could have shot up your nostril which wouldn't have been pleasant,dreadful if in your eye and very embarrassing if soon after you had visited a small room and a tinie weeny piece lodged in a embarrassing place and you had to call for assistance from a man in uniform x

  10. I too am appalled they didn't have a first aid kit. I would have thought it would be standard practice. Masking tape tsk.

  12. I danced and danced at a disco skidded on a spilt drink and cut my arm badly on broken glass on the dance floor my nurse friends took me to the cloakroom attendant and there were no plasters x

  13. I find Mary's expression very moving - she really does look as though she sympathises. Sorry for your poor old finger - isn't it always in a nasty place-anywhere near the nail is extra sore.

  14. I could just eat a slice of Arctic Roll right now. In fact, scrub that, I could eat a whole Arctic Roll. I shall just have to make do with a single finger of KitKat.

  15. Yes, a coupon for a free treat from the cafe to compensate for your injury should have been given. Hope it heals quickly! xx

  16. Ouch...turned my stomach when you said the cut was deep along your nail. Hope you could dress it properly when you got home...it's hard tending to your own wounds. x

  17. That is going to be sore for awhile.

  18. You caught a bit of shrapnel. Bad luck. Hope it's no longer sore. x

  19. Have you ever thought of wearing a vest-cam, like the police do? It would be wonderful for us, being able to follow your antics as they happen. Hope it mends soon.

  22. Just a mishap. A cut like that is going to take some time to heal. Accidents happen to the best of us.

  25. my cowboy of a brother would offer to cauterise it with a soldering iron. Compared to that, masking tape is positively upmarket!

  26. Claims-r-Us should get you £50,000 for that! Good luck.

  27. I've spent a lot of time in Britain and never came across Arctic Roll! I shall have to google that and perhaps add it to my culinary delights list for next visit...if I'm ever allowed to leave my country again that is. :)

  30. Bet you wish you'd never mentioned the cut finger John. The downside of being an internet sensation I suppose. Life's a game. Just play it. Take care of yourself.

  31. Blogland is indeed a strange place at the moment, but I'm determined to document my renovations and house move for my own diary reasons, and hopefully politics won't come into it 😄
